Another week has passed, and the first round is now complete. The Sweet 16 is set, and everything was true to form in the Senior Circuit. All top seeds in the NL advanced, although the Padres did it by the skin of their tonsure. The Padres and Astros tied at 13-19, and then had a head to head record of 2-2. The run differential (-14 vs. -29) gave the Padres the ticket to the next round because of their lame offense and awesome pitching staff.
The AL on the other hand was like the Poseidon Adventure, everything was upside down. The lower seed won in 4 of the 6 contests. Plus, all four of the AL West teams made it to the next round.
